Tim, a Cumbrian climber who leads expeditions on Everest, has raised over £5,500 for the rehabilitation of Nepal with his challenge.

He's still running in the Lakeland fells, attempting to do a Bob Graham round after cycling the Fred Whitton route over all the Lakeland passes, swimming the length of Derwent Water and back.

The cycle ride is one of the toughest in the UK: 112 miles over 6 Lakeland passes including Honister, Wrynose and Kirkstone.

The swim is 4.5Km each way in open water, while the run is a 66-mile ultra marathon starting and ending at Keswick's Moot Hall.

It's taking him a little longer than the 48 hours he'd hoped for but he's still on target to finish.
